Great Decisions

Sponsored by AAUW, the League of Women Voters of Tyler/Smith County, and the Tyler Public Library, these popular local events are part of the National Foreign Policy Association’s nationwide attempt to encourage local communities to learn about and discuss critical United States foreign policy issues. For each of the eight topics, participants complete an opinion survey, and those responses are compiled into an annual report that is sent to Congress and the President.

Each program begins with a presentation by an expert in the topic and includes dialogue among the audience members and the experts. A steering committee that includes representatives from the three sponsoring organizations, plus other interested East Texans, plans the local Great Decisions programs.
